The Northern Marianas Humanities Council cordially invites the public to attend a presentation on the Chamorro language that will be held at the American Memorial Park Theater on Tuesday, Aug. 14, from 6pm to 8pm.
In their talk, titled “Community-based Scientific Research on the Chamorro Language,” Manuel F. Borja, Sandra Chung, and Matthew Wagers will examine what community members and scientists can accomplish on the Chamorro language by working together.
The trio will reflect on two recent collaborative projects on Chamorro that explore the possibility of an online version of the revised Chamorro dictionary and investigate how Chamorro speakers understand the Chamorro language.
Borja is a member of the community-based organization Inetnon Åmot yan Kutturan Natibu. Chung and Wagers are linguists at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
This presentation, a part of the council's ongoing Community Lecture Series, is free of charge and open to the public.
